Microsoft Excel is used by many people, but of these, most only know its basic functions and uses. Small differences go a long way in making a difference in ease of usage and efficiency. During this webinar, you will learn tips and tricks to make Excel work for you.

As our speaker says – “Either you work Excel, or it works you!” With the techniques you learn during this webinar, you will be able to finish your Excel-related tasks easily, and quickly. He will walk you through the various features of Excel, and provide useful shortcuts and tips along the way. You will also receive a copy of the examples he uses during the presentation.

You will learn a lot of useful information, such as what to do if you can’t open a damaged workbook, how to restore the classic Print Preview function in newer versions of Excel, how to convert older files to modern (.xlsx) format to avoid disabled features, how to have Excel read numbers aloud to you so you can double-check manual input of figures, how you can wrangle long lists of data by filtering – as opposed to sorting, and many others.

All webinar attendees will be provided detailed handouts which will enable them to remember and apply all that they have learned during the webinar. Handouts provided for this webinar include PowerPoint slides, guides, and an Excel workbook.
